Really enjoyed this old vine Garnacha. 7 years later all of the tannins had softened into pleasant dustiness. Fruit was still there but soft and velvety. Held up perfectly with spicy shrimp scampi. Not an outstanding wine, but really pleasant and I wish I had more in cellar.
Pw/45 minute decant. Clear, deep dark purple color. Very nice nose. Drinking perfectly now. Very well integrated, soft tannins, proper Garnache taste. Med body, med/long finish. Super smooth with absolutely no harshness whatsoever. Nothing off. Great wine especially for the price.
Decanted for about 20 minutes enough for 2 glasses, lovely nose, lots of great fruit, raspberry and cherries. Silky mouth feel, medium bodied,very lovely wine, full flavored but in no way over powering. Floral hints on the palate along with some great raspberry and cherry.
